Ja’neh’s Impeachment Trial to Commence Late November?

first_imgAssociate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh fate to be decided on Thursday, February 14, 2019.-Authoritative Senate Source hints Daily ObserverDays after voting to amend Rule #63 of the Standing Rules of the Liberian Senate, there are indications that, after all, the impeachment trial of embattled Supreme Court Justice Kabineh Ja’neh will go ahead in late November.The source, who is a member of the leadership of the Senate, informed the Daily Observer on late Monday, November 12, that legal minds close to the Senate are currently preparing what is expected to be used as a timeline for the trial, which he said may commence before the last sitting of this extraordinary session and will run into December.“In fact, we are expected to start seeing activities towards that ill-advised legal maneuvering as early as this week; but we will remain resolute that there are more legitimate and pressing national issues that need our urgent attention and intervention. The time is prudently not right for such a political issue as an impeachment of an Associate Justice,” the source declared.The source further said the next three weeks of the extraordinary session will transform the Senate Chamber into the busiest center for one of the most unprecedented legal battles for years to come.The Senate, through its Committee on Judiciary, last week voted to accept an amendment to Rule #63 of its Standing Rules, which was prepared to fall in compliance with Article 43 of the 1986 Constitution of Liberia, and would be used during impeachment trials for the President, Vice President, Chief Justice and Associate Justices, among others.Many legal luminaries told the Daily Observer that, though Justice Ja’neh will not be guilty of all that is contained in the impeachment document, he may once again set another legal record and even gain more popularity by resigning before the trial.It can be recalled that former Chief Justice Chea Cheapoo in the late 1980s, under the regime of President Samuel Kanyon Doe, was set up on bribery allegations and impeached; but he refused to face trial and resigned, saying: “I will not appear before that kangaroo court.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
